In An Echo We Remember
David Gan Chong Jin
In An Echo We Remember is a community art project by the Tsao Foundation that seeks to collect, curate and present the rich cultural and living heritage of Whampoa. We conceptualised and designed the exhibtion graphics, vinyl and catalogue.
Whampoa is a small quiet town iconic for its pastel-hued HDB buildings. Its facade — painted in creams, pale yellows, washed-out blues and dusty pinks — provides the estate with a soothing, cocooning ambience.
Taking inspiration from its quaintness, the exhibition catalogue minimally uses simple graphics, typography and flat colours to capture the thriving Whampoa culture in modern Singapore.
